Rashid also bagged the man of the match award for his match-winning bowling figures of 4/12. He thanked the Indian crowd for their support and said he tries to give his best for the team.

“This is what the team expects; I try to do my best in all departments. I used to bowl after 11 overs earlier; this is the plan given to me, to bowl in the middle and end overs. Was mentally ready, wanted to bowl in the good length areas. It was crucial, wickets of Shakib, Tamim, Mosaddek and Soumya. They are key players, we know how good they are, so we wanted to keep things simple and focus on the basics. Thanks to the crowd for the great support, we expect them to turn up for the third game as well.”
